Thanks for the patch, this would indeed use some improvement.

How about we just run make to get the version like liblockdep does?

LIBLOCKDEP_VERSION=$(shell make --no-print-directory -sC ../../.. kernelversion)

probably s@...../..@$(srctree)@

$(srctree)/usr/include is not going to be there for out-of-source builds.
